2020 and 2021 represented years of great change. Many companies had to face and implement remote working in a hurry.
The digitalization process of businesses has long started and has accelerated sharply with the onset of the pandemic in 2020.
This has led to a distortion of habits and approaches to be followed in order not to be left behind and not create problems for corporate well-being.
This is why it is important to find new techniques that can fill the gap that remote working has highlighted.
To intensify and organize your work directly from home, here are 3 tips to keep in mind.
3 tips for ultimate productivity
1. Create a dedicated space
Although it may seem tempting to work directly from the sofa at home or in the kitchen, there is always the risk of not being able to “disconnect” from work once the day is over.
Whether it's a corner of your living room or even better, transforming the guest room into an office, having a space dedicated to work can help a lot to increase efficiency and give you the feeling of "leaving the office" once the day is over.
While it may seem unimportant, carefully designing and defining the place we will assign as our office while working remotely will have a big impact on work productivity and allow us to separate work from personal or family life.
Try using an ergonomic chair that supports your entire back and provides the necessary support. Use a table or space just for your work items so that when you move from there, you can make a "mind cut" and not carry the work into the rest of your day and personal space.
Look for natural light and, if possible, add a plant. This directly affects energy, air circulation and the reduction of anxiety or stress.
Another important point will be to change positions from time to time. Of course, this will be easier to apply if the weather, sanitary conditions, the nature of your job or the layout of your home allow. However, find another place to disconnect and avoid staying in the same place all day without moving.
2. Take breaks and go out in the fresh air
Remote working makes you work more than you used to do in the office. In fact, without even realizing it, it's 6:00 pm, you've been sitting at your computer all day and you've only gone to the bathroom a couple of times.
This is why it is important to go out for a walk or simply take a breath of fresh air a couple of times a day, not only will it be great for your mental health, but it will also help improve your concentration.
3. Avoid unnecessary distractions
The distraction is everywhere, in one's home, pets, children, or even just a pile of dishes to wash; It can be very difficult to stay focused when working remotely, but creating sharp and clear boundaries could be a good start.
Even just establishing a sign that means "do not disturb" could become the only thing you will need. If, on the other hand, being on social media or surfing the internet is distracting, we suggest you use site-blockers to help you stay focused or you can simply turn off cell phone notifications.
